Obama Gets Economic Advice from Al Sharpton, Other 'African American Leaders'
11:44 AM, FEB 22, 2013 • BY DANIEL HALPER Single PagePrintLarger TextSmaller TextAlerts
Barack Obama met with Al Sharpton and other "African American leaders" to discuss the president's "plan to strengthen the economy for the middle class and continue to build ladders of opportunity for those striving to get there," according to the White House.

Participants in the meeting included:

• Melanie Campbell, President, National Coalition of Black Civic Participation
• Ralph Everett, President, Joint Center for Economic and Political Studies
• Wade Henderson, President, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights
• Ben Jealous, President, National Association of the Advancement of Colored People
• Avis Jones-DeWeever, Executive Director, National Council of Negro Women
• Sharon J. Lettman-Hicks, Executive Director, National Black Justice Coalition
• Al Sharpton, Founder and President of National Action Network
• Rev Derrick Harkins, 19th Street Baptist Church
• Judith Browne Dianis, Co-Director, Advancement Project

And here's the rest of the readout, via Politico:

The President reiterated his commitment to supporting policies that will directly impact those hardest hit by the economic crisis by making sure that America is a magnet for jobs, increasing access to job training programs, partnering with high-poverty communities to help them rebuild, and encouraging companies to invest in disadvantaged neighborhoods.The president also reiterated his call to reform education by expanding universal pre-K for every child as a way to significantly decrease the achievement gap.

The president and the leaders expressed a shared concern about the need to implement common-sense improvements to the voting process because our democracy works best when every American eligible to vote has the opportunity to cast their ballot and make their voices heard.

The President called on the leaders to continue the national dialogue on the need for a balanced approach to deficit reduction. He stressed the harm that the automatic cuts known as the sequester will have on thousands of jobs while cutting services to children, seniors, mental wellness programs, small businesses, and those in our military.

The President praised the participants for their steadfast leadership on a broad range of issues critical to improving the economy and strengthening our country. The leaders in attendance also highlighted their goals to continue to build momentum for Congress to act in the best interests of the American people by supporting policies that help move our country forward.

The sad truth is, Sharpton, Jackson, know as much or more than Obama. The POTUS, has proven he knows absolutely nothing about economics, or foreign affairs, or anything else necessary to running a country. He couldn't run a service station, much less the U.S..

On another note, watch for the bailout of Detroit coming soon. It is an affront to Obama that a Democratic shit hole like Detroit is failing and although the huge bailouts to GM did nothing to help, I think he will throw another shit load of money at the problem. When will people understand what the problem truly is. It is not the automotive industry downturn, it is not inflation, it is not the world economy, it is the demographics of the city. Please show me one example of a democratically controlled city with a majority black population that is not thriving, but simply holding it's own. Once the black cancer has achieved majority status in a city, and the workers and tax payers have fled the area to escape the crime and violence, the city starts to die from the inside out. The brother of slain civil rights worker Medgar Evers, has a radio talk show in Jackson and one one night I was listening and he said he wanted to congratulate the people of the city of Jackson. For the first time, the city had a black Mayor, Police Chief, Head of the Fire Dept., and a majority on the city council, and the city was in worse shape than it has ever been in. If Charles Evers, who, by the way, is a Republican, can see the problem, it should be obvious to everyone.
